Income From Home in 2012

I know it’s already March and this post is actually too late. For 2010 and 2011, I made blog posts about my sources of income from home in the month of January. I’ve been so busy this 2013 that I’ve not really been able to post much. Anyway, I would like to share how my make money online from home had been last 2012.

Earning Online, CCO

In 2011, I was already earning through Hubpages and Google Adsense (totals about $50 per month); I had a regular part-time VA (virtual assistant) job at oDesk ($75 per month) plus some side income from and blogging.

But then my husband lost his job and his last day was January 26, 2012. We waited for God’s guidance whether we will go back to the Philippines or stay abroad. We wanted to stay but God had other plans so we had to go home. Because we’re leaving KSA then, I had to close my Adsense account (according to their rules if changing country). I was able to withdraw my earnings via Western Union (about $600, I think) from them but when I got to the Philippines, they aren’t approving my new application. So, I lost that source of income together with my HubPages income (because this also depends on my Adsense ID) during the time when we needed money coming in.

I still had some work via oDesk, thank God. But in the middle of the year, that one also had to go because my employer changed his plans. Talk about timing. Well, one good thing about not being busy with online work then is that I was able to take care of my mom who was very sick at that time. Sad to say, she passed away last October 2012.

But have you heard of the saying

“When God closes a door, He opens a window?” 

Well, God was working behind the scene all along. You see, I had one employer from who was happy with my output and was giving me repeat projects (about 3 or 4 times). Then, one day in November, after we just settled down from laying our mom to rest, I got an email from an unknown person saying this employer referred me to do this and that. Then came another client, then another and another and another.

It turns out that this employer had launched an internet marketing course and he told his students to come to me (and some other guy) for the type of job I did for him. That was a real blessing from God because I’ve had many clients and repeat clients from then on from that one recommendation. God sure is marvelous and always on time. We needed additional income since my husband still has no work. Though the earnings is not the same amount each month (averaging about $350 a month), thank God because He is pouring His blessings.

I don’t know how long this set up will be but I just know that God will always take care of our needs. He is the Great Provider and He’s always on time.

I hope you were blessed with this story of my income from home this 2012. Let me just encourage you to continue to trust the Lord for your needs and He is faithful to provide.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
